33: Vasovagal Syncope with guest Annie Fulton

Part 2 of a 4 part series on  syncope.

Syncope is one of the top reasons why a rapid response is called… but the question is, what precipitated the syncope?

In this episode we discuss a classic case of vasovagal syncope, in which Annie’s patient had a six second pause on his ECG in response to some overwhelming news.  We break down why atropine might not be the best intervention for this patient and some of the treatment options for bradycardia.
